1.  What methods did you use to gather information via indirect and descriptive assessment (e.g., interviews, observations, ABC assessments, checklists, etc.)?

2.  What were the results of your assessments? What is the hypothesized function of behavior? What other possible functions might also be plausible?

3.  What are the primary factors that influence the presence or absence of the targeted behavior?

4.  How could you set up a functional analysis to test your hypotheses?

5.  Considering what you have learned about initiating or increasing a desired behavior, develop an intervention that will hopefully result in a desirable change in your behavior. Please note that Unit 8 involves a discussion about your attempt to change this behavior over the next two weeks!
